5.0 out of 5 stars The price was so low and it's the real thing!
FORGET Radio Shack and their super-inflated prices. This iGO products are almost 400% cheaper at AMAZON. These products work perfectly and are quite durable. Amazon got this one right! Under $5.00 for the charger! You'll need a connection tip that fits your phone, also under $5 bucks.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poorly engineered or poor quality control
This is my third iGo device. The first was a universal laptop power supply -- the undersized, inflexible supply wire broke within 3 months of using it. The second was a charger identical to this one, it failed within 4 months. The present device keeps popping a 20 amp cigarette lighter fuse in my car. As I have now replaced 5 fuses, 2 of them OEM VW fuses, and I use...

5.0 out of 5 stars good choice,
This review is from: iGo Universal Car Charger for use with iGO Power Tips (Wireless Phone Accessory)This charger is the best because it's the only charger that you can add itips plus the power splitter to charge two at the same time
5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect,
This review is from: iGo Universal Car Charger for use with iGO Power Tips (Wireless Phone Accessory)Was exactly what I wanted. I needed one to to to replace one husband broke the one I had before.
5.0 out of 5 stars I like the charger..Note: tips sold separately. Fabulous Service,
This review is from: iGo Universal Car Charger for use with iGO Power Tips (Wireless Phone Accessory)I bought both the universal charger and the wall charger.
They have tips that plug in to use with your device.
They worked great for me (we don't use them everyday)
and now MY husband uses the car charger.
I lent it to him and he loves it so I never got it back!
No Problem. I got on Amazon, & a new replacement car charger
from seller Blue Kangaroo.
FYI- I got an open charger. NO documentation. No tips.
Blue Kangaroo sells the tips separately.
NO problem since I have the device already.
Please note: this product is no good without tips.
You can buy tips separately.
I give the product four stars.
Great product. Spare tips clip right onto cord.
Looks nice and is solidly built.
My husband used with his cell phone. That was a Verizon Motorola flip phone.
Now he had a Iphone. I believe it works fine.
(If it didn't he would give it BACK with lip service!)
I would say it is an average to good back up charger.
I liked the fact it had different tips, so you might
be able to take one charger and charge several things.
It is also nice, for now you can buy spare tips.
Blue Kangaroo current Amazon seller I give FIVE stars.
They have been very helpful answering my questions.
" The item you purchased (IGO Charger) will not work for the iPad mini,
tablets or laptops, it is a cell phone charger.
iGo does have tablet chargers and they have the 8-pin lightning
chargers and a whole array of items for the new cable for those."
So I asked about the Kindle:
"The item you received with the right tip will trickle charge the
Kindle but not fully. Whereas the other charger(s) I mentioned
that work for tablets can be used to charge a Kindle."
Blue Kangaroo offered to take the product back with full refund
if it did not work for me. Due to my questions they thought I did
not have any tips, and I owned devices it would not work for.
I have several devices it works for. Mostly cell phones.
But I think it does ok for my Garmin GPS too.
We use it for cell phones.
The IGO wall charger appears to charge my Garmin NUVI 3450.
I think in the CAR the IGO at first appears not to work, goes black...
but then does work. Scary, but works. But I don't remember. OK?
That is my review.
This is a cell phone charger.
It requires tips to use.
We have ONLY used the white apple tip and the
maxi and min tips A97 and A32.
We are only casual users.
This Product, the Igo car charger, (and the Wall IGO charger)
have worked flawlessly. I have had them for several years.
The tips are interchangeable between the wall and car charger.
There is a clip on the cords to store the tips.
5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I was looking for,
3.0 out of 5 stars was a little worried because the price seemed too good to be true,
UPDATE: 6/2/2013... Guess it was too good to be true. Starting last week, I kept hearing the "ding" it usually makes when it first starts charging all the time. Checking my iphone, the charge signal wasn't on. If you wiggled the cord just right it might click back on, but would go off even if you didn't disturb it. Didn't want to mess around and possibly short out a phone over a $5 cord, so I am changing my advice to don't buy.
4.0 out of 5 stars iGO Charger,
5.0 out of 5 stars xl DS,
5.0 out of 5 stars Met Expectations,
Was as expected, arrived on time, packaged properly.
Would purchase again.
5.0 out of 5 stars very functional,
5.0 out of 5 stars Love this!,
